The tribus Pomptina (or Pontina) was a later rural tribe of Rome, which was established in 358 B.C.

tribus, Roman voting assembly


The tribus Pomptina was placed in agro Pomptino, a region of Latium located between Mons Albanus and the Tyrrhenian coast. Control of the territory had passed to the Volsci in the late sixth century B.C., prompting Rome to reportedly begin establishing colonies - beginning with Norba - in the early fifth century B.C. Having reclaimed the Ager Pomptinus by 389 B.C., Rome established the colony of Setia ca. 382 B.C.
